We have been on the cable car numerous times, sometimes we go up and down, while other times we take the bus up to Monte and get the car down. There are great views, but it's a shame that you can see the damage caused...More

If you plan to take the cable car from up to down and park upstairs, it is probably feasible but not recommended in my view. Driving to top is quite difficult and requires some power in the engine because of the declivity of the hilly roads. Not sure about availability of parking spots when arriving. It is clearly planned to do the trip the other way. You have plenty of parking in Funchall close to the start of the cable car.
